I found that the highback on the contacts was not all that much stiffer than the Hurrithanes unless its super warm out, and the baseplate on the Contacts is more malleable. Basically the Contacts actually felt softer.

For under $200 its hard to beat either Salomon Arcades or Rythms, K2 Indy's, or if on sale Raiden Zero's. Honestly I would look for some Raiden Zero's on sale and get those. They sound perfect for you really.
